Dear Parents and carers

Welcome, I look forward to getting to know you all as the term progresses.

 

PE kit, including trainers should be brought in on Monday and kept in school all week.  PE will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children will need a tracksuit for outdoor games once winter arrives.

 

Reading

Your child will have brought home a reading record this week. They are encouraged to read for a small amount of time every day and to record this in their reading record. When they have finished a book, they have a selection of activities in the front of their reading record to choose from and complete to investigate their book further.   The reading record will be handed in twice each term.

Children will be able to choose a reading book from the class, a library book and a book from the mobile library. Children will also read to a teacher at least once a week during Guided Reading sessions.

 

Homework

Children are encouraged to learn their tables and will have a times table challenge every week.

Spellings will be set on Monday and tested the following Monday.

 

If you do have any concerns or worries about any aspect of your child’s learning please feel free to come and speak to me.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mr Stephen Hampton

 

What Squirrels class said about our Roman adventure...

'I liked all of the Mosaics on the wall!'

'I learnt a lot about what the Roman's wore and ate.'

'Jupiter's column was cool because it was tall and had a lot of art work.'

'We got to feel how heavy the Roman Armour was.'

'I liked the excitement of going there.'

'I thought it was exciting when the bus broke down and we had to adventure to another school!'
